Watercolor II

Watercolor II


with Patricia Sevigny-Higgins, Marshwood Adult & Community Education

This class is a continuum from a beginner Watercolor class. We will briefly go over the basic watercolor techniques as well as basic color mixing. The majority of the class is to continue and work with the basic techniques as well as add some new ones to our tool box.

Those who want to work in a more representational manner, will work on light and creating form in their pieces. Those who are interested in a more exploratory abstract/semi-abstract style, are welcome as well. The goal is to create two to three pieces if possible.

Please bring in all watercolor supplies you work with as well as a good quality watercolor paper. I highly suggest a 300lb hot press and or cold press paper. Blocks seem to be more popular, however cut sheets work as well. Painters tape and a good board surface if you are working with cut paper is essential. Bring in subject matter that is interesting to you. More the better!! If you like to work from life, bring in your subject matter to work from.

No class April 22nd

What About the Photos?

What About the Photos?


with Ann Sargent, Ellsworth Adult Education

Now that photos are digital no one prints them out anymore.  Learn the very basics about how to transfer photos from your camera or phone to your computer, how to access them on your computer and send them to friends and family and/or  to be printed.  All computers and devices are different, so this workshop will share the general processes.  Basic computer skills, including hardware and software basics as well as email are required for this workshop. At the first session you’ll learn what hardware, if any, you should bring to the second session if you want to do some hands on work (computer, camera or other photo device, connecting cords, and thumb drive are all helpful).  No class 04/24/20; makeup class (if needed) 05/08/20.
